Yep, I'm buying a postie bike (Honda CT110). All 6'4" and 220lb of me getting hauled around by that little engine. Moving into town soon though, so it's all good, I don't need to go faster than 40mph.

Evilvet, wouldn't happen to be that company starting with P? I'm going for a job with them.

Another reason to despise facebook.

Because of this: http://www.womenactionmedia.org/faceboo ... -facebook/

feminists wrote:In a world in which hundreds of thousands of women are assaulted daily and where intimate partner violence remains one of the leading causes of death for women around the world, it is not possible to sit on the fence.


http://gamapserver.who.int/gho/interact ... chart.html

It isn't even in the top ten.

The overwhelming number of victims of all types of violence worldwide are men.

Effectively train moderators to understand how online harassment differently affects women and men, in part due to the real-world pandemic of violence against women.


Special pleading as usual, they demand "equality plus".

German police warn of exploding train ticket machines

10 ticket machines have been blown open using sealing tape and flammable gas

Ticket machine card fraud rise in EU
Police in Germany are urging train passengers to be wary of ticket machines that they say could explode after being tampered with by thieves.

Criminals in the central state of Hesse have discovered a way of breaking into the machines by filling them with flammable gas, taping over openings and triggering an explosion.

But some of their attempts have failed, leaving gas inside the machines.

The authorities warn that passengers could be at risk.

A police spokesman said 10 ticket machines had been blown open and cash and blank tickets stolen. But the attempts at robbery have failed in at least six cases.

On Tuesday, a station platform in Karben, near Frankfurt, had to be evacuated and bomb experts called in when a taped-up ticket dispenser was discovered, along with a smell of gas.

The police are asking passengers to be careful and to call them if they see any suspicious signs.

Train operator Deutsche Bahn has confirmed the incidents and strengthened security measures. In a statement, it said a criminal group appeared to be operating.

They said the perpetrators had only succeeded in stealing small sums because the machines were emptied frequently.

Interesting idea. I imagine it would be damn loud but seems like it gets the job done while leaving the valuable items relatively intact.

hey the place im going to work on summer has *few* old mosin nagant barrels, been outside for decades but seems like they only have a thick layer of rust and still might be used for something.. Any hint of removing this rust from the inside? Im not trying to save the rifling as i have a feeling that its long gone, but it might become a nice smoothbore barrel

Could try boiling in distilled water....will convert red iron oxide to black iron oxide.

Like rust bluing. :wink:

Crafty. I wonder if they guestimate internal volume and inject it precisely, or just go for something like hydrogen with a wide explosive range...

Sounds like spray'n'pray to me :D

You never know. Boiling in used automotive oil is something we used to do with recovered parts.

My best guess is that they install a permanent ignition source, open the gas valve and run like hell..
As soon as the LEL is reached the thing will blow up :roll:

She never was a petrolhead so I don't quite understand the choice, but she seems to love it :)

The pistol is a vintage Röhm rg2s I got from my grandpa a few years ago :)

I don't know about Rambo and an automatic gun.. I can't imagine soda bottles can take that kind of abuse :roll:
